Hello Brain Apprentice (aren't we all :)
> I was wondering if it was possible by some extension, tool or SPM8 itself to have a single slice summary view for all subjects in a VBM study that I am running in SPM8?
I think that vbm8 has a tool to do that ("VBM8 - Check Data Quality -
Display one slice for all images"), if you google it, you will find it
on Christian Gaser's page.
> I know I can use Check Reg and display up to 15 subject scans at one time. However, the images get rather small and most of the time I am only interested in an Axial view, the Coronal and Sagittal views are redundant.
An alternative may be to use check_reg to only show one image and then
save it as a graphics file, which you can then use as you wish. The
following snippet may help you to do that.
% === Start
vols = spm_select([1 Inf],'image','Select Images to show',,pwd,'.*');
for i = 1:size(vols,1)
fg = spm_figure('Findwin','Graphics');
[p nm e v] = spm_fileparts(vols(i,:));
fnote = ['File ' nm ' from ' strrep(p, filesep, '_') ];
figname = [pwd filesep 'graphics_file_' num2str(i) '.png'];
print(fg, '-dpng', '-noui', '-r100', figname);
% === End
Hope this helps,
